A goal from the former Parisian, and, above all, a double from a survivor, Jimmy Briand revived the Girondins. “It was the rage that drove us. Thanks to Jimmy who showed he had a huge pair of baloches”, Adli will drop shortly after at the microphone of Amazon Prime. The three points are there, for poetry, we will come back.
